What To Do With Old Play-dough
Wondering what to do with your leftover homemade play dough as the year comes to an end?
Cut up cardboard for the children to use as bases.
Put out a collection of materials. We used popsicles sticks, googly eyes, sequins, pipe cleaners, glitter, beads, old tinker toys….
Then we put out the old play dough. It used to be several different colors and had been well loved into one large hunk of brown. The children each took a chunk and created a sculpture. Some focused on creating designs
while other decided to make faces.
Each one was so unique. This was a well loved center with some children making at least three sculptures. Luckily we always make a LOT of play dough!
Give it a try. I would love to see what you put out to add to your sculptures. Share some pictures with me.
